Join CELT’s director, faculty fellow, and staff in a three-part series on documenting your teaching. You can attend 1, 2, or all three sessions held on Fridays throughout October. Participants will find these workshops especially useful for documenting teaching for promotion, tenure, annual review, and professional development.

Session 1: Ideas for documenting your teaching efforts at ISU with Sara Marcketti

Using an ISU-centered checklist, participants will determine areas of their teaching that they have already well documented and discover ideas for additional evidence of good teaching.

Session 2: Writing or Revising your teaching philosophy statement with Karen Bovenmyer

This interactive workshop will help guide you through the core areas (objectives, methods, evaluation) of writing or revising your teaching philosophy statement.

Session 3: Workshop: ABCs of Preparing Your Teaching Portfolio with Cynthia Haynes & Paul Hengesteg, Oct. 15 (12-2 p.m., 2030 Morrill Hall, register through Learn@ISU)

This in-person workshop, the third in a series or stand-alone, brings elements of effective teaching together so faculty can organize evidence of their teaching, analyze their effectiveness, and create their teaching narrative. Participants will identify themes in their teaching feedback from themselves, peers, and students and connect them to their teaching philosophy statement.
